    One of my favorite bloggers, Bardiac, wrote a great post this week discussing just what’s wrong with that “Why Gen Y Yuppies Are Unhappy” post, from over at Huff Post, which has been all over the blogosphere lately: “Again With the Kids These Days.”

      Holy crap Angel H: The Spectraspeaks post: Warrior Princess?!! OMFG. I’ve always disliked the white savior ™ b.s. Dances with Wolves, Avatar (god I really hated that movie) Eat, Pray, Love, (eyeroll) but this little memoir wins asshole book of the year. D: (good blog though thank you. She articulated those uneasy feelings I’ve had about the White Savior meme.

    A former friend of mine is an excellent writer of fantastic/SF stories. He’s Indian, 30ish years old and one of the gentlest souls I know. His work deserves all the boosting it can get.

    Here is a sample story http://indiansf.in/2013/09/01/shaking-off-the-chains-by-jayaprakash-satyamurthy/

    and here is his blog http://aaahfooey.blogspot.de/

    Just wanted to signal-boost a really interesting interview I saw of two WOC in the military talking about the representation of women in military-focused video games.

    They had some really trenchant observations about the way women in the military are viewed / how narratives are constructed.
